Hummer set to recall 162,000 H3 models because of faulty hood louvres


Hummer can’t catch a break, can it? If it’s bad enough that the brand is now on its way to being completely dissolved, now comes news that the Hummer H3 models manufactured from 2006 to 2010 are being recalled because of defective hood louvres. All in all, a total of over 162,000 Hummer models are included in the recall.

According to a report done by Consumer Reports, the hood louvres have the potential to become loose over time, causing it to completely fly off of the vehicle. It turns out that the tabs that keep the louvres in place are liable to break over time, which then causes vibrations that can loosen the entire hood louvres before separating off the hood completely.

As a result, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration has issued a warning to H3 owners to be wary of the potential problem and that the slightest bit of vibration should be enough reason for them to call Hummer at 800-732-5493 or bring their H3s to their local GM dealerships to have the problem fixed as soon as possible.

Whatever they said, I still love Hummer. Btw, replacing louver is not a serious matter.

I think that hood louvres is really not safe. Unfortunately because it is made of plastic and eventhough it is made of fiber. I guess it cannot able to handle the hit of the engine.

Hmmm IMO that’s not a big problem because it wont affect the performance and safety of the car. But still it should be recalled and I’m pretty sure I wont take 60 minutes to replace the louvers.
